John Read BComm'05 runs a small publishing company producing space exploration books targeted at youth aged 10 and up. His most recent release, written by his wife Jennifer Read (who works at the Saint Mary's University Writing Centre), is called "50 Animals That Have Been To Space" in partnership with Formac Publishing.
The book is available on Amazon in paperback, hardcover, and ebook form. However, without reviews generated primarily by launch events, the book is struggling to gain traction online.
We promise, your kids will LOVE this book. If you purchase this book on Amazon, please write a short review (even, "Great book"). That would really help us out.
If you'd like a free ebook edition, please "like" the 50 Animals That Have Been to Space Facebook page, and they'll provide instructions on how to download a free copy.
